Where does it say that your laptop has 5.1 channel audio? How many sound ports do you have.

One thing could be that you have to go into the setting and enable the 5.1 surround sound but what this does is use your headphone jack for the two front speakers, the line-in jack for either the sub/center or the rear speakers and the microphone for the other...

With some 5.1 speakers like from logitech (you can also by this part seperately) you can get an adapter to go from the 3 1/8th inch jacks to 2 RCA jacks and you can use an RCA to 1/8th to connect it to the single headphone jack on your laptop. This will not be tru 5.1 surround sound. It will just take the left and right front sound and direct it to all the speakers.

Another option is to purchase a 5.1 suround sound card that would go into the PCICIA slot in your laptop (assuming you have one...). One option would be the Sound Blaster Audigy 2.


I hope one of these suggestions helps your problem
Post back if you still need help

Cheers
Klink
